Growing up (in the Christian church) I was always told that the Torah was the same as the Old Testament of the Bible. I now know that this is not completely accurate.

Can some of you who know about both Christianity and Judaism explain the differences between the two? What is in the Torah that is not in the O.T. and vice versa?

(I'm not Christian or Jewish, but I would just like to understand the differences to gain a better understanding of both religions.)

Thanks!!
